Welcome to the coverage of the fifth and final day of the second Test between South Africa and India in Pretoria on Wednesday.

India will need to pull off something special to clinch an unlikely victory on Day 5, with the visitors needing another 252 runs on an uneven pitch to win the Test and keep the three-match series alive.

On Day 4, a fiery spell from pacer Lungi Ngidi left India reeling on 35 for three in 23 overs, after being set a challenging 287 for victory.

At stumps on Day 4, Pujara was unbeaten on 11, while Parthiv was not out on five.

Kagiso Rabada dismissed Murali Vijay for nine after he was bowled off an inside edge.

Debutant Ngidi left the visitors in a mess with the wickets of KL Rahul (4) and Virat Kohli (5) to reduce India to 26 for three.
